April is Limb Loss and Limb Difference Awareness Month – celebrating with us today is Brittany. Brittany is a ray of light with a bubbly personality and unmatched optimism. We have only recently started working with her, but are blessed that she considers AOPI family. She lost her left leg below the knee about 2 years ago after a small toe stub developed into infection and ultimately amputation. She received her first leg from a different company, but came to us because she wanted something that would keep up with her very active lifestyle. Brittany works part time, is pursuing an education in occupational therapy, and is a full time mom to a young son. We made Brittany a new socket to keep up with her in the gym and are looking forward to helping her run again soon. This video is the first time she’s walking in the office with the new socket and she is rocking it. You are amazing and an inspiration, Brittany!
